Scenic Cambridge

Busy processing images from my shoot in Cambridge on Sunday… an early start, saw some wonderful light about 7:30am.
It was important that the client had a variety of inspirational and creative images of old and new Cambridge – moving away from the tried and tested imagery of the city to something a little more interesting and emotive – scrapping a lot of the traditional rules of photography to bring together a creative narrative of the modern city.

The B/W is a view of Corpus College – While everyone was shooting images of the college and all taking the same shot, I stood back, waited for a few minutes and grabbed a couple of frames of the college, but with the gorgeous silhouettes of the tourists, all taking their own photographs.

Emotive images from a day shooting in Cambridge

Another set of emotive images from a day shooting in Cambridge a couple of weeks ago.

As well as the usual sights of the colleges, it was both interesting and fun to capture images showing the depth and variety of subject matter available to shoot.

I particularly enjoyed wandering amongst the streets, sipping a coffee and waiting for scenes to unfold – bikes to go along the cobbled streets, a punt to travel under the bridges on the River Cam or the sun to shine on wonderful architecture – a truly enjoyable, if tiring day.

Charming city of Cambridge

Popped into the charming city of Cambridge last Thursday to shoot images of ‘Classic Cambridge’ for some new PR material for a local company.

The sun shining, a beautiful day, with especially nice early morning light. Walking around the colleges and across numerous stone bridges, before the city came to life provided me with some rather special access.
Shooting the majority of images with a 50mm f1.4 lens, the post processing has taken the form of contemporary magazine feel to the images – aiding to that classical form.

Here are a few images – a few more to come later in the week
